„Everything made is made either by art or by a physical process or according to some power.“

—  Sallustius Roman philosopher and writer
On the Gods and the Cosmos, Context: Everything made is made either by art or by a physical process or according to some power. Now in art or nature the maker must needs be prior to the made: but the maker, according to power, constitutes the made absolutely together with itself, since its power is inseparable from it; as the sun makes light, fire makes heat, snow makes cold. Now if the Gods make the world by art, they do not make it be, they make it be such as it is. For all art makes the form of the object. What therefore makes it to be? XIII. How things eternal are said to be made.

„The entire vitality of art depends upon its being either full of truth, or full of use“

—  John Ruskin English writer and art critic 1819 - 1900
Lectures on Art (1870), Context: The entire vitality of art depends upon its being either full of truth, or full of use; and that, however pleasant, wonderful, or impressive it may be in itself, it must yet be of inferior kind, and tend to deeper inferiority, unless it has clearly one of these main objects, — either to state a true thing, or to adorn a serviceable one. Lecture IV
